No actually. Its coming though apparently. I finish work at 9 then I'll sleep and by the time I wake up there should be a blanket of white.

What time is your coach? :(

I really hate to do this, but I shall be unable to travel to meet the 1st Annual NG Snowball fight (London), due to trains, coaches and the like being thoroughly fucked. We've got accidents left, right and centre, pretty much ever school is closed and with a further foot forecast in the next 24 hours, I run the risk of not being able to get back.

Guess Coop's luck finally ran out...

Well it was gonna be in 20 minutes but they cancelled. Maybe for the best because to be honest I don't think I could even make it to the bus stop, honest, it's insane here. My dad rang earlier and said there's a mini car pile up on the way to the station.

Have a wunderbar time everyone and maybe draw my face on to a balloon or something. ;(

On the topic of weather, today particularly is a shitty weather day so do use your own best judgement. Theres no need to put yourself in harms way. Might have to shuffle things around today, so stay tuned.

XOXO

Yeah, so that saved me £120 on a two night stay. I can't claim on the travel though...

It's a fucking blizzard over here, seriously. The snow is relentless. I've got the news on and I'm waiting for them to reveal the extent of the disruption to all the public transport services.

I'm also expecting to hear that the blizzard is a result of some sort of evil snow demon having awoken from it's 1000 year slumber

Well, it's only 30 quid, I'd rather lose that than much more by trying to go and being involved in a crash or something.

Just a shame that I can't make it.

Here's the driveway and road outside (yes, it is there, underneath the snow!), by way of explanation.

I wake up to a goddamn blizzard here. I can't be sure with what's happening tonight but if anything changes, I still have my phone with me.

Surprisingly enough I've actually made it into London with not too much hassle. Now I just gotta figure out how to pass the time til the meet.

Half 6 and the road was black, give it until about 5 past 7 and it was white. Considering weather warnings about travel only if it were life or death (literally, in some cases) and not being able to escape the clutches of London and my choice was made by about half 7...

Luis said at the very start:

"I'm going to stay off the radar as far as events go in 2013, I have some big projects I want to finally release.
So probably the only event I host next year. <3"

Also, I'll make my way to Wapping in about half an hour so see whoever survived to get here then.

TFL website says there are minor delays on Picadilly line from Cockfosters to Arnos Grove which does affect me. Can't say how minor is minor so I'll get ready now.

If the trains are still running tomorrow I should be able to make it. I might be meeting friends after so I don't know if I'll leave early, but if all works out I should meet everyone at the London eye and mumble and make no eye contact as planned.

I'll try and dig out my NG t-shirt as well.

Not that anyone was hanging their hopes that I'd show but with the late dropouts and the weather 'crisis' it makes it a little easier for me. I could make it rather ok by train still (its just a straight 45 minute run to London bridge then a couple of tube stops), but still my major issue was always the money and I cannot justify spending the money that I need for my rent just to have fun. I know I said already that I couldn't go but I always thought "Well, lets just get to Friday and see how our bank account is". And its a shame cause I fucking love karaoke :(

I'm out, too. Got dumped with more snow than we've had in several years. If it freezes, we wouldn't make it out of the driveway either in foot or by car. Not worth the risk.

Time to get some sleep before a 5 hour coach ride in the snow

Hopefully I'll survive and see y'all tomorrow!
